It has been proven by multiple medical researchers that the right kind of food can have a positive impact on a person’s health.
What’s important and essential is to start eating healthy and maintaining a healthy lifestyle at a young age, which can undoubtedly impact the rest of your life. According to a recent study in Healthline: How your genetic profile can predict your chances of being obesethey found that many obese adults actually have a gene that doesn’t allow them to know whether or not they’re full, which can lead to overeating. They found that some people actually never get full because this particular gene actually prevents some from overeating because they’re always feeling full. Regardless of this study (because we can’t wait until they come up with a magic pill) most obese adults are overweight because they have had bad eating habits which they acquired since childhood. This has led many of them to participate in physical activities necessary for the cardio pulmonary which can lead to problems as they get older. Studies have also shown that it is crucial for the young body to get stronger early on which is why up until the age of 17, it is vital that young adolescents develop their physical stamina early on which allows them to develop healthy hearts, and organs as well.
Healthy eating at an early age also gives you the possibility to practice more sports, which also increases your ability to socialize properly and develop healthy peer to peer relationships. Along with that comes a stronger nervous system, better proprioception, flexibility, stamina, strength and coordination. Healthy eating habits also help to establish a system that you can carry on towards adulthood, repetition becomes reality. Doctors and other health professionals have tracked these results amongst others and because of the multiple cases of heart disease and cancer in our society, many have recommended a healthy diet as a way to possibly deter these diseases. This is also why it is important to sleep at night. At night is when your body heals and where it has a better chance of fighting those negative cells that can eventually turn to cancer. Combined with healthy eating this is when we give our bodies the best chance for survival. Healthy eating provides real food that provides real nutrients that are full of vitamins, good calories, low in sugar, low in fats, high in good fats and basically devoid of the empty calories that come with packaged junk food. Eating healthy also requires there to be less quantity of food that needs to be wasted in the processed facilities which is why our consumption of meats is also hurting our planet and environment.
How do you maintain an active lifestyle ?
You have to make it a habit. That is the core of an active lifestyle. Also, create balance within your life. Listen to your own body, to what it needs; we are living in a world where the pace isn’t slowing down, its speeding up. If you need a fast paced workout to help you with your daily routine, then go for it, but if you need a slow workout then maybe a walk or yoga will help you unwind. The average American works 9 hours and an average of 19 full workdays stuck in traffic a year. That leaves very little time to care for children, have an active social life, let alone take care of all the chores. Fortunately, there are several options available to you despite your busy schedules:
- Taking the stairs instead of the elevator
- Work standing up
- Walk to your lunch spot
- Join a gym
- Do Body Movements
There are a lot of options that exist to keep your body burning calories throughout the day. Just use self-discipline to make sure people need to learn similar stuff almost like learning a new language.
